Democrats wrong party for adult leadership

Keywords Opinion

If Sheila Kennedy [Aug. 26] has left the Republican Party and become a Democrat in hopes of finding a party of grown-ups, she can’t be thinking of the same Democrats who seem to follow the rules of Saul Alinsky, who advises in “Rules for Radicals” to make the other party the worst kind of evil while Democrats need not stick to the truth to accomplish the end.

With people like Anthony Weiner, the four former Illinois governors who are in prison, Jesse Jackson Jr., and Charlie Rangel, who didn’t pay his taxes, and all the Democrat-controlled cities teetering on bankruptcy due to politicians promising more than they could possible deliver in order to be elected, it appears that as a party of responsible adults, it comes up wanting.
